Homework Help: English

Posted by Lynne on Friday, July 20, 2007 at 6:20pm.

Are these sentences correct:

The littel boy handed Santa a list that said he wanted: a truck, a train, and a million dollars.

Her mind flew so quickly-she had so much to remember-that she forgot to stop at the light

First sentence:
~~correct the spelling of "little"
~~delete the colon after "wanted"

Be sure to read the whole explanation, including when NOT to use a colon.

Second sentence:
~~use a dash, not a hyphen, after "quickly" and again after "remember" -- if you're not clear on the difference, look at what I just typed (word space hyphen hyphen space word).
